E feel that we are the servants of the
public, because the public supports us
and pays us, vith our yearly profits,
' for the services which we render them.
Like good servants, we are not content unless
we render to our patrons the very best service
possible and all which that implies. While the
support which we have received in the past
. has been most gratifying and would lead us to
believe that we have been giving satisfaction,
we are satisfied short of nothing that is not an
improvement on the past.
We and the buyers of our various depart
ments have scoured the markets of the world
in order that we may this Spring place before
our patrons everything in the way of men's,
boy's and children's apparel which is best,
newest and most serviceable, at the lowest
price consistent with the high standard de
manded of us.
Our Spring Stock is now ready for your in
spection, so without further ado or blare of
trumpets we ask you, at your convenience
and leisure, to inspect our Spring offerings
and pass judgment upon them today, tomor
row, or whenever you choose.

Japanese Laborer on Maui
The Perkins Had No Fear of Spain.
H. C Co's Landing Rapidly
MAUI, May 7. During Friday, the
Cth. a Japanese contract laborer of
Sprcckelsville plantation hung himself
in one of the houses at Camp 2. He
tied the end of a rope to a nail on
the wall, passed it twice around his
neck, fastened it to another nail on
the same wall, and threw himself
downward. The only explanation
offered for his death was given in a let
ter directed to his mother in Japan,
which letter was discovered in the
house after his death. In this com
munication he asks for a certain magic
paper which would prevent his dying
suddenly. It is not probable that a
coroner's jury will be convened.
During Thursday afternoon, the 5th,
29 teachers assembled in the Makawao
school house, the regular monthly
meeting of the Makawao Teachers' As
sociation. Inspector-General Town
send gave a short address on the theory
of "concentration" and talked con
cerning the Summer school of 189S.
During the week, Mr. Townsend has
visited the Makawao, Kealahou, Keo
kea, Kaupakalua, Hamaltuapoko and
Spreckelsville schools. Today he is at

The landing of the Hawaiian Com

into Kahului Bay, and the work is
progressing rapidly. A large lighter
is well nigh completed.
During Saturday, April 29th, the
schooner Allen A., Scharge master, ar
rived in Kahului, 31 days from Ta
coma. She brought a cargo of lumber
for Kahuli R. R. Co.
During Thursday, the 5th, the bar
kentine Geo. C. Perkins, Maas master,
departed for San Francisco with a
cargo of Paia and Hamakuapoko sugar.
Miss Green was the only passenger.
Last evening, the 6th, a large num
ber of Makawao people attended the
May meeting of the local literary so
ciety which took place at the resi
dence of B. D. Baldwin of Hamakua
poko. The following program entitled "An
Evening with the Schools" was of a
highly amusing nature and not, as its
name implies, extremely scholastic in
spite of the fact that 10 teachers in
cluding the Inspector-General had to
do with its arrangement and execu
tion. Remarks on early Hawaiian edu

Australia to Return.
The local offices of the Oceanic S. S.
Company now have definite informa
tion as to the assignments of the Aus
tralia and Zealandia. The Zealandia
will be here on Wednesday next. This
will be her last trip to Honolulu as the
regular liner. No plans for her future
have been made. It is not likely that
with the present demand tor boats of
that class that she will long remain
idle. For the next voyage after this
round trip of the Zealandia the old
favorite Austrialia will again be the
local boat. A large force is now engag
ed in placing the Australia in the same
condition she was in when chartered
for the Klondike trade.
